The cosmopolitan metropolis city of Colombo, Sri Lanka is a tropical sanctuary with a rich colonial heritage. This city is home to the most coveted attractions, dining hotspots and retail hubs in the country. Some of the best city experiences await those seeking to explore beautiful Colombo.
Although Sri Lanka’s beaches may be the best for a blissed-out break, the cosmopolitan metropolis, Colombo, stands in stark contrast, a nonstop whirl of shopping malls, and busy streets. The city’s pace is nothing short of electric and accommodates a population of over 750,000.
It was regarded as the national capital till the 1980s, when plans were made to make the city the hub for commercial activities moving all the government corporations to the new capital, Sri Jayewardenepura, Kotte. Colombo is well known for the Galle Face Green, Colombo Harbour, Colombo National Museum and the “Viharamahadevi Park”. The Galle Face Green is the city’s largest open space with a magnificent view attracting many local and foreign tourists. Colombo is amicably compromised of modern facilities and infrastructure such as luxury shopping malls, apartments, highways, and five-star hotels. Enjoy the bewitching Colombo sunset at a rooftop bar, which is sure to give you a sense of calm amongst the chaos.
